For Micah:

Here's some updated info for you on the #'s of Civil War dead. (I'm not trying to be a dick here...it surprised me as well but it's now well documented/accepted:)

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/03/science/civil-war-toll-up-by-20-percent-in-new-estimate.html?pagewanted=all

I don't see where in my post I put down farming at all. I live in a state dependent on dairy farming and while I don't do it myself it's obviously a hard life predicated on sweat and toil and perseverance.

But I fail to see any rational connection you've made for what all the SUPCO rulings have to do w/arming yourself for some kind of apocalyptic nightmare.

My point about the CW is that as divided as our country is now (and it is), it's nowhere near the level of emergency it was in 1860, and talk of barricading yourself where you live b/c some shadowy entity is coming to "get you" and so you need to go all Road Warrior on everyone seems more than a little paranoid and an excuse to show your anger at--something--by shootin' stuff (usually, it turns out--people), til they're all dead.

It seems an exaggerated response to frustrations we all share about the state of the nation, which, I admit and agree, is pretty piss fucking poor right about now.

Thanks for the CW info.

grendel, I answered some of your questions elsewhere. Please forgive me for not going though a detailed answer, but I'm frankly tired. It is out of no disrespect to you.

I will say this is that I lost it there today and I should have stayed away from a computer.

No worries, Micah.

Peace to you and all of us.
